BRENDAN RODGERS has taken a direct shot at the board over their mishandling of transfers after watching his side capitulate in Greece.
Rodgers has vented over the last seven days but he reiterated again that recruitment or lack thereof has cost them dearly.
“Over the course of two games it’s disappointing to concede such soft goals. It’s as simple as that.
“I don’t want to make excuses, but I’ve always said we needed to strengthen, no matter how good we’ve been over the last couple of years.”
The John McGinn saga was the tipping point for the boss to let the fans know he wasn’t happy.
However, it would have taken more than John McGinn tonight to ensure a victory.
Celtic needed their best players fit and available which they weren’t and they needed brave defenders but lost two very soft goals.
It’s the Europa League play-off for Celtic now who will have to pick themselves up in the hope of going on a run in the competition.
